The Lovereading4Kids comment
Fortune Cookie is a typically sweet, soulful story from the excellent Cathy Cassidy. There’s a surprise in store for the Tanberry sisters. Staying with their father in Australia, Honey discovered the existence of a half-brother they never knew they had. Impulsive as always, she wrote to the boy, and invited him to come and stay. Jake, nickname Cookie, is in trouble at home and uses the train ticket she sent to escape his problems. We see all the sisters through his eyes, and his presence helps bring about a reconciliation between Honey and Cherry at last. There’s a definite fairy tale ending to the series and the girls – happier, more tolerant, easier in themselves – deserve it. It will warm readers’ hearts. ~ Andrea Reece

After the amazing twist at the end of Sweet Honey, the sixth and final book in Cathy Cassidy's Chocolate Box Girls series follows Jake, the Tanberry sisters' newly discovered half-brother...Jake Cooke has just had the surprise of his life. He's got four half-sisters that he never knew existed. When Jake's talent for trouble causes chaos at home, he runs away to meet his new family. Life in a rundown flat in Chinatown is a far cry from Tanglewood, where the days are filled with beach parties and chocolate festivals. It's already starting to feel like home. But Jake's about to realize he can only escape his future for so long. However far you go, you can't outrun destiny...
